Mercato di Vetro Offers Italian Cuisine, Cocktails

mercato-di-vetroDaniel Elmaleh designs Mercato di Vetro’s menu to bring Italian specials to its West Hollywood location.

Mercato di Vetro (aka a “market of glass”) is the latest dining destination to be unveiled by the SBE Restaurant Group. Mercato di Vetro has a menu designed by Daniel Elmaleh, the chef who makes Mediterranean and Middle Eastern fare chic at Cleo in Hollywood. Elmaleh tackles Italian cuisine here, in a space that combines restaurant, bar and marketplace selling fresh Italian foodstuffs. After a long list of antipasti—kale-and-ricotta crostini, stuffed squash blossoms, cured meats and cheeses and 10 vegetable selections—the menu moves on to salads and wood-oven-cooked pizzas, a raw bar selection, and meat, fish and pasta dishes. Standouts include a clam pizza with chilies and garlic, and a single raviolo stuffed with potato, ricotta and egg reminiscent of the famed version at Mario Batali’s Mozza. The beverage menu mixes wines with hand-crafted cocktails. 9077 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood, 310.859.8369.
